It's a bit shocking to think about the fact that Chance The Rapper ̵
1; KitKat spokesman, Grammy winner and outsider of educational reform – has never released a recent album. Rather, Chicago's (well-earned) reputation as a musician rests on a trio of amazing mixtapes ( 10 Days Acid Rap and Coloring Book ) along with features on other artists' albums and a handful SoundCloud offers. He has been promising for some time that this year – probably in July – a real album will be released, and in an effort to build a little hype for his release, Chance announced this week that all those old mixtapes are now coming out on the different streaming platforms. (To be fair, Coloring Book was already there, though – along with the other two – there's also a vinyl release.)
In other words, this is good news for all those affected Cocoa Butter Kisses could not simply stream Acid Rap without dipping into Soundcloud – though it's worth noting that Chance apparently could not get a release for "Juice" replaced by a note instead of that Donate streaming revenue to compilations to Social Works.
Meanwhile, preorders for the as yet unnamed current album informally known as Owbum are open.
